The ‘clean factor’ and relationships
Does cleanliness affect your love life? Could bad domestic cleaning habits be the deal breaker?
Clorox and Yahoo! teamed up to do a survey about how cleanliness and love lives and discovered some very interesting proclivities. Apparently, when it comes to selecting a partner a person's domestic cleaning habits are very important, said a third of the respondents and most people would rather date a clean freak than a complete slob in that area. Some even view cleaning compatibility to be as important as sharing common interests.
However, when cleaning habits are incompatible, it don’t necessarily mean the death off a relationship. Only 1 in 10 respondents admitted to have ended a relationship over domestic cleanliness incompatibility.

What are you looking for?
It is possible for a clean freak to find domestic bliss with a sloppy partner, but that combination is one in a million. So if your partner sheds off their clothes everywhere in the house like some snake shedding its skin, it's important to remember that nobody's perfect. Tolerance is a virtue. And for those dating clean freaks, remember to do whatever you can to make your loved one feel safe and comfortable … even if it means making hand sanitizer your new love.
Would you end a relationship based on cleanliness incompatibility?
